Youth Theater Classes

At Plein Theater, children aged 6 to 12 can participate to theater classes in a real theater venue! The lessons nourish the imagination, stimulate the fantasy and broaden the perspective. Together with experienced theater makers and (guest) teachers, they work on performances that are presented to friends and family in the theater.

We believe that fun and teamwork are important. And they also learn a lot in the process. The young makers learn to create scenes themselves and use different techniques. We work on the exercises and presentations both individually and in groups with the input of the students. In this way they learn to work together, gain more self-confidence, create focus and develop as young makers in their own living and experiencing world.

Theater teacher

The theater lessons are taught by Coosje de Loor (1995). In 2019 she graduated as a theater maker and teacher. She is also busy creating her own performance and works in many different places in Amsterdam and the surrounding area. Coosje always works from music and the imagination of her performers. Because their story is central. In addition to giving her group acting lessons, she also encourages them to explore their own creatorship and to use their own strength. Together we will work towards a performance in which everyone has a share.
